This weekend I hosted a Valentine’s and iced coffee tasting party. With Valentine’s Day right around the corner this was the perfect opportunity to gather with friends and have the kids make Valentine cards. I love parties like these because it gives us parents a chance to catch up while the girls play together. The fact that there was coffee and cupcakes involved makes it even better.
I served the iced coffee in mason jars wrapped with lace. To make them I simply hot glued lace onto the jars. This was a small detail that changed the whole look of the setup. After the party I took the off lace, soaked the jars, and the glue slid right off.
The juice boxes for the kids were my favorite. I wrapped them in pink and white polka dot scrapbook paper, added a strip of white paper, then 1.5 inch pink hearts to finish them off.
I found these little take out boxes at Walmart and couldn’t resist. They made the perfect favor box to hold mini play-doh in.
I was running short on time so I bought cupcakes instead of making them. The girls didn’t seem to mind :)
For the decor I used paper lanterns and pom pom trim. Remember my love for rick rack? Well I think pom pom trim is taking over. It’s so cute and you can use it for so many things. I’ll be posting a tutorial on something I made with it soon.
These little girls are going to be best friends. They’ve known each since birth and always have a blast playing together. It’s parties like these that I’m going to love looking back on when they’re older.
We had a great time and the girls had so much fun. If I could I’d do it all over again next weekend!
